BOONE, N.C. (AP) — Chandler Staton kicked a 24-yard field goal as time expired and Appalachian State knocked off 14th-ranked Coastal Carolina 30-27 on Wednesday night.
Chase Brice threw for 347 yards and two touchdowns, and Malik Williams had a monster game with 10 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown in front of a capacity crowd of 31,061 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Camerun Peoples ran for two touchdowns for the Mountaineers (5-2, 2-1 Sun Belt).
They have never lost to the Chanticleers at home.
